At times, striking beautiful and at times, terrifyingly grotesque, the imaginative and exquisite use of animation gives the film its depth and opens up a door into the humanity of the regular characters of this joint — loners, drunks, old-timers — letting us peak for an instant into their souls and the demons that hover around them."

Zhe Wu is a freelance Sound Designer / Editor and Re-recording mixer.

She received a Best Sound nomination from the British Animation Awards (BAA) and two Golden Reel Awards' Verna Fields nominations from the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) in Los Angeles. She has also spoken about her sound works at the London Film Festival, London International Animation Festival and the Aubagne International Film Festival for sound and music in France.

When starting a project, her first aim is to try and "hear" the director's vision (the final mix) in her head. With her creative and technical mastery of sound post-production, she then tries to develop this vision through a lot of experiments and original recordings. She believes that good sound design comes from the mastery of emotion, timing, drama, music, poetry and the sensitivity for the subtle nuances that makes the difference, with support of technical means.

Zhe always tries to practice the principle: ‘whatever the smallest thing you do, always do it to the extreme with your best effort.’ She believes this is the reason for the high standard of work she produces.

She delivers her passion for sound in a very calm, patient and organised way of working. This enables an open, relaxed and enjoyable work atmosphere for people who work with her.

Zhe would love to thank her parents for supporting her pursuit for dreams. Also thanks my Dad for designing lovely logo for me!
